We enjoyed our boat trip despite the weather turning cold and wet en route. Occasional non-intrusive commentary, we enjoyed the dry humour. Very interesting passing through the locks. Refreshments available on board. Rather pricey.

The 2 1/2 hr cruise was chartered out so we settled for a 40 minute cruise instead . It was nice and relaxing with good scenery . When we go back that way we will do the longer cruise .
